The Bucknell Bison and the Penn Quakers meet in college basketball action from the Palestra on Wednesday night.

Bucknell Drops Opener Vs. Delaware

The Bucknell Bison come into this game looking to rebound after taking a 78-57 loss to the Delaware Blue Hens in their season opener. Jack Forrest led the Bison with 18 points on 7 of 15 shooting with 4 threes and 3 steals as the lone Bucknell player to score in double figures in the losing effort. Josh Bascoe added a team-high 8 assists in 21 minutes off of the bench, while Elvin Edmonds IV and Noah Williamson each had 9 points on 4 of 10 shooting, with Williamson grabbing a team-high 8 rebounds and Edmonds IV chipping in 3 steals as well. As a team, Bucknell shot 38.9% from the floor, 35.7% from three and 38.5% from the foul line.

Penn Demolishes Subdivision Opponent

The Penn Quakers started their year on the right foot after a 102-57 win over subdivision John Jay College last time out. Eddie Holland III led the way with 16 points on a perfect 7 of 7 from the field, while Tyler Perkins added 15 points with a team-high 5 assists, 6 rebounds and 3 steals. Clark Slajchert had 14 points with 3 threes and 4 assists while Cam Thrower added 12 points with 4 threes and 6 rebounds. Augustus Gerhart added 10 points and 5 rebounds in 13 minutes off of the bench to round out the scoring in double figures for Penn in the win while Nick Spinoso had a team-high 8 rebounds and 4 assists. As a team, Penn shot 53.6% from the field, 38.7% from the 3-point line and 64% from the foul line.

Chris’ Pick

I’m rolling with Penn here. Sure, it was a win over a subdivision opponent but the Quakers still looked solid and were able to run it up and get the offense clicking. Bucknell on the other hand looked sluggish at home and couldn’t hit water if they fell out of a boat at the foul line. It’s important not to overreact after one game, but I really didn’t like what I saw from Bucknell. Give me Penn at home here.
